Bushing and Flossing with Braces

Our staff at TNT Orthodontics is here to help you with any questions or concerns you might have about maintaining your dynamite smile when you have braces. Brushing and flossing after every meal is vital to keeping your teeth and gums healthy during your treatment.

Brushing Instructions

Position your toothbrush at a 45-degree angle to your gum line and gently brush the outer, inner, and chewing surfaces of each tooth in a circular motion. Remember to use the tip of your toothbrush for the inner surface of your front teeth.

Flossing Instructions

Take a piece of floss about 18 inches long and carefully thread the end between your braces and wire (a floss threader might be helpful). Then, carefully floss around the braces and gum area of each tooth.
